Urban Agenda for the EU: state of play of the actions

Location: Pillar Hall, Alfandega
Date: Fri, January 31
Time: 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM

The current 12 action plans produced by the partnerships of the Urban Agenda for the EU (UAEU) include 115 actions in total. The actions show a variety and breadth of the work of the Partnerships since the adoption of the Pact of Amsterdam in May 2016. At this workshop, different actions and/or highlights developed by partnerships will be presented.

It will enable you to learn more about what the Urban Agenda is delivering and hopefully will inspire you to become actively involved in the implementation of some actions.

Most of the Partnership coordinators and action leaders will be around to present their actions, to discuss with the audience and receive your input and ideas.

The progress of these actions can be followed through a monitoring table. The monitoring table is based on the objectives, cross-cutting issues and principles laid down in the Pact of Amsterdam.
